American Art Collector Magazine feature, Issue 38. Photography by Jeff Newton.

When Lindsay Goodwin left a full-ride academic scholarship just 14 years ago to instead pursue a classical painting degree at art school, she surely had a few people questioning the soundness of such an idea, even herself.  But today, she is in the forefront of the art industry with awards and accolades from all of the country’s leading art magazines, galleries and industry sources. She would have been the last person to expect to make a successful career out of becoming a classical oil painter in the 21st century and yet her paintings would be selling in galleries for thousands of dollars at the age of 22.
 

Today at the age of 33, she travels throughout Europe studying the grand-scale architecture of the opulent opera houses down to the humblest of cobblestone cafes finding inspiration for her alla prima oil paintings. Collectors seek out her work for such timeless scenes as intimate restaurant interiors with glittering glassware, or bustling kitchens with chefs busily whisking their copper pots. She has a career most dare not dream possible. She is daring to make an art of living.

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.   -Lawrence Pearsall Jacks
